One of my students picked BWV 952 in C Major as his springboard Fugue learning form. Our journeys started from there.

German pianist Siglind Bruhn has put up fantastically detailed analyses of both books of the WTC, piece by piece. Highly recommended.

Thank you so much for posting that! I just watched (and of course listened to) the C major fugue from WTCI and absolutely loved it. Made me feel like shouting out "Go, little tune, go!"
